Thinking about this whole love thing

There are lots of posts, questions, and inquiries about the definition of love that pass by here. It has had me thinking about my personal definition. Specifically the one regarding the love in relationships and marriages. In a nutshell, this is my take on it…

Love is…
Pushing the kitchen chair in for the 5 millionth time because he never does.
Wondering why he sits in the same room and never speaks to me.
Waiting for him to “get around” to doing things I ask of him.
Crying after an argument and hurt feelings.
Getting farted on in the middle of the night.
Having to wear a hazmat suit to clean the toilet.


Love is also…
Listening as I share about my day.
Pestering me in the kitchen.
Encouraging me when I’m discouraged.
Always being on my side and by my side.
Holding me when I cry.
Telling me I’m beautiful when I’m washing the dog.
Asking my opinion.
Telling me he loves me every day.

It’s the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes my brain wonders if it’s all worth it; but my heart always tells me that it is.

[@467717,Gangstress] Sometimes I watch him sleeping peacefully and want to smother him with my pillow…then I get up and make him pancakes.

[@6912,Pinkstarburst] lmao honestly. The mrs has said before when we've been cliff walking that she'd quite happily push me off at any time only for us to go home and she makes me the best meal ever.

True love that

Love is her, holding my hand as they give me blood, because I decided last minute that maybe I don’t want to die. And telling me she loves and it’s gonna be okay, even though it’s not and I don’t deserve it. Love is her being there... when I’m too weak.

[@605647,DarkHeaven] A perfect love 🙂
[@6912,Pinkstarburst] Nothing is perfect. But she’s my angel. She heals me. As much as I can be, anyways.

For me, what loving someone means is very simple.

It's making a conscious decision, every morning -- and reaffirming it as needed throughout the day -- that I will do my best to help, hold, support, yell at, encourage, whatever it takes, with one objective in mind -- that she become the very best whoever-she-is that she can possibly be.

It's doing that, when the kitchen chair needs pushing in for the five million and first time, that's the difficult part.

Your heart is beautiful.
